I’m a notoriously bad planner. So I usually don’t plan out what I’m going to wear each day – I just dress for my moods. This week, since my mood has been terrible, I’ve tried to counterbalance it by wearing things that make me very happy, be they new (I’m looking at you T by Alexander Wang dress) or darling vintage with sentimental value like the Christian Dior skirt I wore today.

I discovered this bad boy at Value Village in Laurel, Maryland about 4 years ago. Vintage Dior for $4.50… say what?! Needless to say it is one of my favorite thrift/vintage finds EVAH. I love wearing it with tall boots to give it that fox hunting feel. Today, I paired it with a lovely cashmere sweater vest from Century 21, another thrifty designer find! And for a bit of color… candy pink lipstick and a glass bead “Chiquita” necklace I got back in college in Charlottesville. It jingles a little when I walk and I just love the washed out, watery greens and oranges.

So even though the day sucked, I took much-needed comfort in all the soft textures of my outfit and the subtle pleats in the skirt that made me feel like a ballerina…
